9781566399760: New Left Revisited (Critical Perspectives On The P)

Starting with the premise that it is possible to say something significantly new about the 1960s and the New Left, the contributors to this volume trace the social roots, the various paths, and the legacies of the movement that set out to change America. As members of a younger generation of scholars, none of them (apart from Paul Buhle) has first-hand knowledge of the era. Their perspective as non-participants enables them to offer fresh interpretations of the regional and ideological differences that have been obscured in the standard histories and memoirs of the period. Reflecting the diversity of goals, the clashes of opinions, and the tumult of the time, these essays will engage seasoned scholars as well as students of the '60s. In the series Critical Perspectives on the Past, edited by Susan Porter Benson, Stephen Brier, and Roy Rosenzweig

From the Publisher:

You didn't have to be there

From the Inside Flap:

"This excellent collection of essays on the New Left helps mark the coming of age of a rising generation of scholars, too young to have experienced the 1960s but committed to bringing new scholarly questions to the study of the decade."
—Alan Brinkley, Columbia University, and author of Liberalism and Its Discontents

"From 'Was the New Left new?' to 'Did the New Left die and if so, why?' to 'What was the role of women in the draft resistance movement?' with a dozen case studies by a new generation of leftist scholars, this amazing collection asks new questions and sparkles with new insights and brilliance on every page."
—Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Professor in Ethnic Studies and Women's Studies, California State University

"You'll be amazed at how much you think you know about the Sixties is wrong—especially if you've read the standard works on the subject. This is an agenda-setting anthology, adventurous and rigorous in equal measure."
—Rick Perlstein, author of Before the Storm: Barry Goldwater and the Unmaking of the American Consensus
